It is very hard for us to follow up on comments when there is no contact information. If we get something wrong, or you have a question, PLEASE email us at Thanks


We, the Paper Playful team of "volunteers", would like to remind everyone that these posts are brought to you in our precious "spare" time.
Many of us have full time jobs & families but willingly give up what little time we have left in our day to bring you updated lists of challenges.
We cannot guarantee to have them done by a specific time of day as life often gets in the way. The challenges we list for you also update at different times of the day.
Please understand that the volunteers come from all corners of the globe & late in the day with one person may be early in the day for another! Remember also, the time we spend updating these posts for you is time we could be crafting!
We are human & although we do our very best, we can sometimes make mistakes. Please forgive us for this!
